Ernie and Nadine

Kizh Chief and Spiritual Leader Ernie Perez Teutimez Salas consoles his daughter, Kizh Tribal Treasurer Nadine Salas, as she thanks the city of Los Angeles for dedicating a plaque to the tribe’s sacred site on the corner of Commercial Street and Vignes Street. The plaque recognizes that the spot was once where a large sycamore tree stood, marking burial grounds and a place of religious ceremony.
